This was hands down the highlight of my entire Alaskan holiday! It was absolutely worth splurging on because it's something I will never forget.
The plane ride was surprisingly smooth for being a small plane. The views were amazing and the narration through the headset was informative.
The lodge and grounds were stunning. We had time to explore on our own before lunch so I walked along the shore with a mug of spiced tea, heaven! Lunch was delicious, loved every part of it. Then we went on a guided walk to a waterfall which was the perfect way to end our time there.
The gift shop was also pretty cute and had a variety of souvenirs, both Alaskan themed and Taku Lodge specific.
All of the staff, from Wings Airways and Taku Lodge, were incredibly friendly and I could tell how much they love working where they do.

We booked this directly with Wings Airways and we are so glad we did. This is one of the best excursion to take in Juneau. We took the helicopter & dog sledding in Skagway and this excursion in Juneau capped off our Alaska cruise experience. This is very memorable with the seaplane going over the glaciers on the Juneau icefield. The lodge was beautiful and sitting on the bench with the view of Taku glacier was just amazing. It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the beauty of this area. The grilled salmon meal was also delicious. I highly recommend this excursion in Juneau.

Words cannot describe this amazing experience! It was so much more than I expected, and will be a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life.

The views of the ice fields and mountains from the air is breathtaking… the photos just don’t capture the beauty. The flight was very informative and we loved our pilot! After a very smooth landing we were given some time to soak up the beauty, walk around or sit in the various spots that are arranged so you feel like the only person out there.

Then. came. The feast.

Freshly caught salmon cooked on the grill accompanied by several home-made sides…. The biscuits. Oh the biscuits. And beer. And the other drinks had glacier ice in them! While we were eating, the staff entertained and educated us with story of how the lodge came to be and the life of the amazing woman behind it.

Seriously. Put this on your bucket list. It is so worth it. I only hope to go back someday.

Not worth the $900 we spent for two of us. We were given a set time to meet and then had to wait another 40 minutes just for them to pack us into a big group and treat us like numbers. That 40 minutes counted towards the “3.5 hour tour duration”. Once at the lodge the nicest table was reserved for the “owners” so the rest of us were crammed into three other tables. We were told the food was limited and to only take a little bit; and to top it off the salmon was cold. Staff was not friendly with the exception of the seasonal staff Treated poorly from start to finish and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely a must do if you’re in for an actual adventure in Juneau. Everyone was extremely friendly and professional in all aspects of this adventure. Do yourself a favor and do not book this through your cruise ship, instead go downtown and book with the folks who actually work there. The float planes are incredibly powerful and gives you an up close view of the five glaciers. The meal provided at the small camp was incredible. The folks up there were so friendly. Overall the best experience we’ve had during our visit to Juneau. Well worth the price for this experience. Pilot Hank was fantastic as well. Definitely would recommend to others.

As a local, it often takes out of town visitors to lure me to what is often considered a 'tourist attraction', so I give great thanks to my kiwi friends and partner for this fabulous visit to Taku Glacier Lodge. The flight was magical, with our one friend offered the co-pilot seat (he may or may not have been brought to tears from awe). The staff at the lodge were friendly and informative and the meal was delicious. We were able to walk to the waterfall and enjoy the grounds and the Hole in the Wall glacier before heading back to lovely Juneau. Many thanks for the experience and the safe journey there and back. I highly recommend this excursion.

We've wanted to do this for awhile. Beautiful aircraft and friendly staff. You fly over 5 glaciers and touch down on a gorgeous lake and have a salmon ( or chicken) lunch and hear about the fascinating history behind the lodge. Well worth the price.

One one the best adventures we have ever experienced. We had a blast on this trip. Bruce our pilot was very polite and extremely knowledgeable. We fly this type plane quite often and this was by far the best flight, take off and landing that I have ever experienced. We will definitely be recommending this to all of our friends.

Oh, what a trip! Dave flew our seaplane over 5 different glaciers and pointed out mountain goats to us. The glaciers are amazing from the air! At the Taku Lodge we got to meet Hans, a black bear who lives near the lodge! The salmon, sides, and cookies were quite tasty, and the cold Alaskan beer was refreshing!! Jerry took us on a quick walk through the woods, where we saw sphagnum moss covered trees and blueberries growing wild. An experience we will never forget!

The plane ride over the glacier was spectacular! From the ship you can only get frontal views but to see them from overhead provides an all new perspective. The narrative on the plane was very well done, The visit to Taku Lodge cannot be missed. the quiet serenity of this pristine location should not be missed. The food was awesome, the staff was very informative and the history of the lodge provided a rich experience in Alaskan history. Their are plenty of paths to walk on. The smell of the grill cooking salmom was so welcoming. I would recommend this excursion to all who visit Alaska!!
